Hi, you have a Jennie Wilkinson and a Lulah Robinson in Price Cemetery in Linn County, MO. They are actually buried in Macon County at Oakwood Cemetery.

Hi, I came across this for Jeremiah and thought you might want to add it to his memorial:
Canton Weekly Register dated Nov 21, 1873:
Old Father Punneo died Nov 5, 1873 at the home of his son in Woodland Twp, Fulton Co, Illinois. He was 85. He was born in New Jersey and removed to Fulton County in 1837.

|Dolly Winters Richhart Capurro||Thank you|
Thank you so much for all your research I have found out so much about our relatives. I have been able to make copies for my children to continue the work of knowing our wonderful father Robert Winters and our beautiful mother Alma Winters. Keep up the good work for the rest of the family who loved them so much. Hope your doing well. Your Sis who loves you most Doll
|Constance Moore Andrews||RE: Henrietta Vosburgh Myers|
Oh yes..... Thank you so much for your speedy reply and for your kind consideration. I would be honored to also manage her husband's memorial. Thanks again.
|Vesta McKee||RE: Aunt Ola|
You are most welcome. So you are the daughter of one of Sam's siblings? My sister was telling me today that one of Sam's brothers died young, and was buried near the grave of our grandmother, in Palmyra MO. Our mother would often tend to his grave whenever they went to visit the cemetery. I think they were friends in their youth, as well as him being the brother-in-law of her "Sis".
I just got a copy of the death certificate of Ola's maternal grandfather, Fountain Jones, linked to his Find A Grave. I was pretty excited to get that, and learn his mother's maiden name Mary Beckett.
I appreciate the ones who have done the digging, so I can find the treasure. Ha!
|Vesta McKee||correction for story on Ola Magers|
I stand corrected on the story regarding Ola's sister who died. My sisters, who are older, both remember hearing that Ola's twin died after only a few days 16 Sept 1906. It was another sister whose death caused Ola such grief: Rosa Dell, b. 27 Mar. 1908-d.2 Mar. 1910.
|Vesta McKee||Ola Magers "Auntie"|
Ola Magers was the dearly loved sister of my mother, Mabel Maude Bridgman McKee. Ola's twin sister Lola had died as a toddler, and Ola grieved for her so deeply that she refused to play outside or interact with the other children. The day my mother, Mabel, was born, she came out of mourning, and embraced the new baby as her living baby doll. What a relief for Grandma and Grandpa to have their little girl recover from that grief.
When Ola and Sam went to California, it was a big loss for our mother. They were as close as twins, but they only saw each other a few times in those many years. They wrote faithfully, sharing the joys of motherhood, and loving each other's children long distance. Through those letters my sisters and I felt like "Auntie" and Uncle Sam were still a part of our life.
"Auntie" was such a joyful person, even though she had endured hardships and personal tragedy. When I think of her, I remember those great hugs and that cute little chuckle, and the way she would tilt her head when she flashed her big smile.
Our mother described their childhood life in rural Missouri, back in the horse and buggy days. It was really like "Little House on the Prairie"! Their Father's name was William Henry Bridgman 1878-1934.
So glad you are maintaining the grave site.
|Farm Girl from MO.||RE: Jennie Blessing|
Glad to be of some help. Always think an obituary adds so much more info. than death certificates ever can and provides the names of children so they can, hopefully, be linked to their parents. Have a nice day, Farm Girl from MO.
|Farm Girl from MO.||RE: E. Jennie Blessing|
I added the obit. and other info. to Jennie's memorial and then transfered it back to you. I hope it helps you connect your family tree together as the obit. mentioned other relatives, etc. Just wish I knew where Jennie's first husband, Dr. Walt W. Moore, was buried. No memorial for him on Find A Grave. More later, Farm Girl from MO.
